It profits us nothing!

A.W. Pinkby A.W. Pink

“Though I understand all mysteries and all knowledge . . . and have not love, I am nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:2

We must distinguish between things that differ, namely, a knowledge of spiritual things–and actual spiritual knowledge.

A knowledge of spiritual things can be acquired by the unregenerate.
Spiritual knowledge is peculiar to the children of God.

A knowledge of spiritual things is merely intellectual and theoretical.
Spiritual knowledge is vital and effectual.

One may take up “Bible study” in the same way as another would the study of philosophy or science. He may pursue it diligently and enthusiastically. He may obtain a familiarity of the letter of Scripture and a proficiency in understanding its terms, far in advance of the hard-working Christian who has less leisure and less natural ability. Yet what is such knowledge worth, if it . . . does not affect the heart, fails to transform the character and make the daily walk pleasing to God!

Unless our “Bible study” is conforming us, both inwardly and outwardly, to the image of Christ–it profits us nothing!

Live for God’s Glory

A.W. Tozerby A.W. Tozer

That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15:6

It may be difficult for the average Christian to get hold of the idea that his daily labors can be performed as acts of worship acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. We must practice living to the glory of God actually and determinedly. By one act of consecration of our total selves to God we can make every subsequent act express that consecration. By meditation upon this truth, by talking it over with God often in our prayers, by recalling it to our minds frequently as we move about among men, a sense of its wondrous meaning will begin to take hold of us.

The New Testament accepts as a matter of course that in His incarnation, our Lord took upon Him a real human body. He lived in that body here among men and never once performed a non-sacred act. Brethren, we must offer all our acts to God and believe that He accepts them. We should then keep reminding God in our times of private prayer that we mean every act for His glory. We thus meet the temptations and trials by the exercise of an aggressive faith in the sufficiency of Christ.
